Knopfler and Harris Release Duets Album

Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris released All the Roadrunning, their first album of duets, on Tuesday (April 25). The two first met while taping a TV special with the late Chet Atkins and have been working on the album sporadically in Nashville for the past seven years. “In my writing, I’d been dealing a fair bit with the male-female shape,” Knopfler says. “With that amazing voice, Emmylou, now more than ever, seems to capture a kind of universal female experience, something that speaks to all ages.”
